What are some of the problems caused by a large milk supply?
Mothers with a large milk supply have a higher risk of breast pain, milk pimples, plugged ducts, mastitis, and abscess formation. The risk diminishes as the milk supply settles down in the months after delivery. Mothers who have had major difficulties breastfeeding need to ensure that there is no other cause of their difficulties. They may want to take preventive measures and decrease their milk supply.
